Free Compliments for Nurses

by Nursetopia on January 26, 2012

One of my new favorite blogs is Kind Over Matter. I found it this past weekend as I was searching for free lunchbox printables to put in my kiddos’ lunchboxes…because, you know, I am never creative at 6:30 AM as I’m spreading PB&J over wheat bread while simultaneously thinking about my to-do list for the day and dreaming up how I am going to squeeze in a minimum of 30 minutes of exercise before I crash into my sumptuous pillow later that evening. I need all the lunchbox-note help I can get! Turns out my kiddos adored the notes. Yay! In addition, the Kind Over Matter Breathe poster is now on my office wall, and I have given it away to numerous nurse manager and leader colleagues; I also plan to share it with my team members in a meeting this Friday. It is an excellent reminder and a beautiful piece of medical art.

Amanda, Kind Over Matter author, has this most excellent freebie for a Free Compliments Poster – Break Room Edition. After subscribing to her blog and reading more about her, I learned she has quite a bit of healthcare background working as a nurse aid in hospice and home health. Rock on! In all of five days, her blog has brought me much inspiration. I hope the same for you. I took Amanda’s Free Compliments Poster – Break Room Edition and ran with it to create a nursing-specific compliments poster. Print it, download it, hang it in your nursing break room, share it with others. Work is hard enough; share the love.
